SHM/Constant visual disturbance

Hey,
I have SHMs about every other month. My triggers seem to be excercise and bright lights/ sunshine. I have been experiencing these migraines for about 3 years and do not have them under control. They are scary.

I have also been having constant visual disturbances since September. I have been to 8 specialists, and no one can find the cause. My new visual symptoms are similar to that of a migraine aura, though not as intense and they do not go away or proceed a headache.

Is there such a thing as a constant visual migraine? Could these new visual disturbances (light sensitivity/shadows...) be at all related to my SHMs?

Thanks!

Hi,

Your symptoms are very suggestive of a migraine variant termed as Persistent aura without infarction. This condition is not fully understood but results in constant aura symptoms which are mostly visual but can be auditory as well.
